and a quilt from Aunt Gwen...
Here is a link that might be useful:
Very nice, Gwen! Congrats to your nephew on his graduation!
Gwen I love it!!!!! The border makes the fabrics pop in the blocks!
Is that you with the handsome firefighter? you look alike!
What is the name of the pattern?
I believe it is Woodland Clover from the More Nickel Quilts book....by Pat Speth...
I tried to make it masculine, but added a few fabrics to personalize it for his memories...some Gator blue, FL fish, Hawaiian fabric for his trip with his Grandpa there a few years ago, a piece of fabric of lighting...which will be a big part of his training for his career.
It took every bit of 4 weeks...which is quick for me...I didn't work on anything else in order to finish in time.
THX for listening and such sweet comments!
Gwen, it's wonderful! Very masculine and personal too. He looks so proud to be receiving this great gift from his aunt!
Very nice!!Love scrappy and even better when it has memories attactched. You have a handsome and proud looking nephew. Congratualtions to both of you. TFS. Jayne
Wonderful quilt, Gwen. And such a good picture. I have a GD about the same age who is a firefighter. Is he single? LOL
Wonderful quilt.......gotta love those scrappies. Great job.
Congrats to the graduate.
He looks so happy! Your quilt is very manly and a terrific gift. I agree the peiced border makes the blocks pop! Great quilt. Congrats to you nephew!
Nicely done! It is great when you get to see the smile on their face when they receive a special gift. Congrats to your nephew.
Love it, Gwen! Congratulations to your nephew!
Gwen, a beautiful quilt for a handsome nephew.
I really love your quilt and to think it only took you 4 weeks to complete! Wow! I'd be at it for 4 months!
What a fantastic graduation gift - something he will treasure for a long time
Love the quilt!! And congrats to the new firefighter.
Gwen, Nice job! I like how you made it manly but also included the personal touches for memories. No wonder we haven't seen you around, you've been holed up in your sewing room with the door locked! I still haven't gotten one of those Nickle books!
Thanks to all of you! I'm going to forward this link to him.
Great quilt Gwen and kudos to your nephew.
